Rescue Me ID: 17-03-01-00236Pengyi (female)

Akita Mix    Age: Adult

    PengYi, if I could keep you, I would! Ok, to begin, the picture you see is not an Akita, but RescueMe required me to select a breed. PengYi, actually is a mutt. I rescued this loving and intuitive dog when she was only 3 months old. She is from Taiwan, (I was living there for 5 years) so I don't know her breed. I am looking for somebody who wil love this amazing dog. PengYi now almost seven years old, she is healthy and all her shots are up to date and she has no heart worms (never has). I will be going back overseas, first to Africa and then to Taiwan (my Lord willing). Taiwan's quarantine process really messes with a pet's psychology, ... (Read More)also I just don't have the money to transport her back and forth. So the best thing to do for this affectionate best friend is to find someone who will love her and enjoy all the blessings of having an incredible partner by his/her side. Around other dogs: Pengyi, when meeting a dog for the first time goes through the 'it's my territory' barking phase. She and the other dog will sniff each other for a few minutes and inevitably PengYi will start snapping and barking. From my experience, the second time she meets that same dog, PengYi after the sniffing routine is pretty normal and with a passive interest, just leaves the other dog alone. Around children: I used to bring PengYi to school with me all the time in Taiwan! When kids petted her softly on the her head, she would sit there and enjoy the love. When the children would tease and chase her, she would show her frutstration by running after them and barking at them. These kids loved it!!! I would say that if a child knows how to respect PengYi then she shows the same respect. PengYi isn't a biter, she is however a growler and barker. The few times I've seen her 'snap' at somebody is when she feels threaten (i.e. pick her up by areas that cause her much pain). There was a time when she felt someone was going to sit on her and she instinctively snapped back (growl, quick litter bites). She not an aggressive dog. Barking: PengYi will bark when someone is around the house or knocks/ring door bell. If she knows the person then she quiets down pretty quickly after connecting with him/her. There is training that can be done on her to not bark, but I haven't pursued it. Her territorial and protective nature might come in handy! A warning when someone is around your home might be a better deterrent then motion lights. It's sure quicker in response time. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting an Akita in Ohio
    Akita Dogs can make good pets in Ohio if they match your IifestyIe. The Akita Inu, or Japanese Akita, is a large Spitz-type breed of dog. Akitas are intelligent, companionable animals and make excellent guard dogs. Akitas are willful and need firm training. Akitas are protective of children in their own families, but may be aggressive toward outsiders and should be supervised with small kids. Akitas may bite if provoked; they need to be treated with gentleness and respect. Akitas can live in an apartment but do need sufficient exercise; they do best with a large yard.
